Jake Odorizzi threw five scoreless innings and allowed five hits and two walks with a career-high 11 strikeouts over five innings against the Indians on Friday.
Despite posting his most dominant performance of his young career of Friday night, Odorizzi did not factor into the decision for the third time over his last four starts. He is now 1-3 with a 5.79 ERA and 1.74 WHIP which is not impressive, but if he can rack up the strikeouts similar to his previous performance, he will start to gain the trust of prospective fantasy owners. The Rays youngster will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Mariners on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
